Hi, my name is Carolyn, my gandmother was Emma (emily) Tallboy, daughter of George Edward Tallboy B:May 29th 1850 -1924 and Emma Door B:1851 - 1891. They also had six sons who I did not know existed until early this year.
George was the son of Thomas Edward Tallboy B:30th August 1818 in Dursley died 11th September 1852, in Bolton Lane Dursley, married Elizabeth Harris on 9th October 1942. Other children were Thomas 1843, Ephraim 1845 - 1853, Albert 1846, James Edward 1847.
In 1851 Thomas and Elizabeth were living at Snooks Hill Dursley with five sons, Thomas was only eight and already shown as an Assistant rope spinner, Ephraim was aged 6, Albert aged 5, James aged 4, all shown as scholars and George only 10 months old.
Thomas Edward Tallboy died when George was only two, the whereabouts of his mother are not known, George is now 11 and is shown living in Dursley Union Workhouse with his older brother James. Ephraim died in 1853, not known at present what happened to the other brothers.
By 1871 George found work as a Labourer in the town of Stratton St. Margaret, Wiltshire and is lodging at Stratton Green. Thomas Edward Tallboy was the son of James Tallboy and Anne Long, Other children were:
Charles B:1822 (about) died 23rd June 1885

All lived in Dursley, Gloucestershire.
James Tallboy was born 26th January 1794 in Dursley and died on 1st Febuary 1877 in Lindon Street, Dursley. He married Anne Long 9th April 1815 (Anne was born about 1789). James and Anne are both 45 and are living with their five children in The Slade, Dursley. James and his eldest son Richard are both employed as Rope Makers and Charles is now a Blacksmiths Apprentice.
In 1851 daughter Elizabeth is at home with James and Anne along with a granddaughter Rhoda. 1861 James and Anne are living in Bolton Lane with Granddaughter Rhoda who is now aged 11. James is still a rope maker now aged 68 years.
Living next door is their son Charles' wife Sophia and their six children.
1871, despite both being 81 years of age, James is still a Rope Maker and Anne looks after four of her grandchildren, who are now living with them, William aged 16 is a Book Keeper, Ellen aged 12, Ralph aged 11 and 8 year old Annie are shown as Scholars. They have also moved back to Slade Lane.
I can go back further, I hope this is of interest to someone out there, it would be great to find some long lost relatives
